Whatever methodology you use, Smart Decisions will support you and your team.

There are many different methodologies available that are just different words for a common structured problem solving methodology. All of these methodologies usually involve steps to help people avoid common pitfalls like trying to solve a problem before you define it, not analyzing (diagnosing) the cause in some fact based manner, and not considering how to sustain the improvements that you've made. 

Remember, the methodology or process doesn't "solve" anything but it does provide a common vocabulary for problem solvers to use. Similarly, the software can't "solve" anything for you but provides a set of standard tools to guide you on how best to apply your knowledge and creativity.

Different methodologies have different emphasis in different areas. Smart Decisions is unique in that it aims to provide tools for all areas and will fit with whatever methodology is your preferred one.

An innovation toolkit you can't afford to ignore

Our innovation toolkit is a suite of WebApps containing over 2,000 solutions from a wide range of sectors and industries. It is a huge knowledge base of technologies for generating ideas and includes robotics, sensors, decontamination and Triz.

It is said that over 90% of the problems engineers face have been solved somewhere before. If they could follow a logical path to an ideal solution, starting with their personal knowledge and experience, and working their way through company, sector and external knowledge, most of the solutions could be derived from knowledge already available. Our databases provide access to knowledge outside of an individuals' personal knowledge.


Save time & cost: speed up optioneering and front-end thinking

Improve quality: get proven and workable solutions reliably and repeatably

Reduce risk: know that a pathway to a solution is possible

Enhance confidence: demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of available option

Knowledge Management: learn from others - inside and outside of your industry
